Maybe I am wrong about this, but I thought this celebration move started with Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers putting on a championship belt ala a WWE wrestler. But then he cashed out with State Farm and we pretty much all call it the “Discount Double Check” move now.
Apparently Nate Robinson really wants to make sure he’s getting a good deal on his insurance.
After knocking down a big three in the fourth quarter putting Chicago up 7 in the Bulls win over the Knicks Thursday night, Robinson pushed the “Discount Double Check” belt celebration to over top doing it at least five times, and apparently a couple of times the camera didn’t catch. It instantly became a discussion among the NBA’s twittersphere. I wanted Robinson to hit a game-winning shot just to see how many of these he would do.
Remember Robinson and the Knicks Steve Novak — who uses that move to celebrate big threes — had a little tiff going back-and-forth last season. This probably all stems from that.
